Raise the war cry,a1 you nations, and be shattered!2 Listen, all you distant lands. Prepare3 for battle, and be shattered! Prepare for battle, and be shattered!
Devise your strategy, but it will be thwarted;4 propose your plan, but it will not stand,5 for God is with us.b6
The LORD spoke to me with his strong hand upon me,7 warning me not to follow8 the way of this people. He said:
"Do not call conspiracy9 everything that these people call conspiracyc; do not fear what they fear,10 and do not dread it.11
